Submission + - Nvidia firmly deny plans to build a CPU (pcpro.co.uk)

Barence writes: "A senior vice president of Nvidia has denied rumours that the company is planning an entry into the x86 CPU market. Speaking to PC Pro, Chris Malachowsky, another co-founder and senior vice president, was unequivocal. "That's not our business," he insisted. "It's not our business to build a CPU. We're a visual computing company, and I think the reason we've survived the other 35 companies who were making graphics at the start is that we've stayed focused." He also pointed out that such a move would expose the company to fierce competition. "Are we likely to build a CPU and take out Intel?" he asked."I don't think so, given their thirty-year head start and billions and billions of dollars invested in it. I think staying focused is our best strategy." He was also dismissive of the threat from Intel's Larrabee architecture, following Nvidia's chief architect calling it a "GPU from 2006" at the weekend."
